The start of a new season always brings a refresh to our already amazing dinner menu in Morgan’s restaurant. The local farms start to produce spring vegetables, of which our new dinner menu has plenty of! How about you start your meal with a Spring Sweet Pea Soup with Lemony Creme Fraiche? Follow it with my favorite – the Superfood Plate, completely vegetarian: Flaxseed Encrusted Portabella, Quinoa-Hemp-Tofu-Spinach Pilaf with a Goji Berry-Spirulina Coulis and an Arugula Salad with a Goji Vinaigrette. How many more Superfoods could that entree possibly offer?! And here I thought the Wild Salmon Superfood plate could not be outdone! Meat lovers, don’t despair – try the Filet Mignon with Spring Asparagus, Wild Mushrooms and Thyme Reduction, or the Organic Roasted Half Chicken with Variety of Spring Vegetables and Herb Butter. And then to dessert, my favorite part of any meal: a refreshing Lemon chiffon mousse cake with marinated strawberries. What will you make for dinner tonight? How about reservations! Call us at 1-800-222-2909!
Out with the old, in with the NEW!
LCD TV’s are on their way! Choose to stay in Sunnyside, Countryside, or on the 1st floor in the Main Building and you will be watching your favorite show on a new 32″ flat screen TV. The TV’s will also have a DVD unit, so bring your favorite movie along as well, or watch a movie you haven’t seen from our complimentary movie library. But don’t stay up too late – you don’t want to miss our complimentary deluxe continental breakfast now offered Monday through Friday from 6:30am to 9am! If you’d rather enjoy breakfast in bed, a room service menu will also be available from 7am to 10am. More exciting changes coming to Interlaken – keep reading my blog or better yet, come visit and see for yourself!
A REAL Spring Deal!
Now is the time to getaway and see Spring start coming to life! Many schools have Spring break in the next several weeks, so surprise your kids and take them away for a true nature 3 day vacation! There are plenty of hiking trails (including the Appalachian Trail) close by to the Interlaken where one can see the first hand signs of this amazing season. The buds on trees, blooming forsythia bushes, crocuses popping up, and have you heard the Peepers peeping yet?
Welcome back, Porsche Drivers!
Along with the pansies at the front entrance is another tell-tale sign of Spring when the regional chapters of Porsche and BMW return to the Lime Rock Race Track. It certainly was a cool morning this morning for the 2010 initiation, but I am sure they didn’t mind the cooler temps of the Spring given the long winter! New this year at Interlaken is our Skip Barber/Racers’ Lounge up in the Penthouse featuring a 55″ plasma TV. Racers will be able to enjoy a very casual atmosphere while enjoying complimentary snacks and the chance to meet all of the other driving enthusiasts – all on top of the Interlaken’s highest point – the Interlaken’s Penthouse Roof. Drive to Interlaken and Lime Rock Race Track this season!
Wedding Trade Shows
We just returned from our 4th trade show this season, this one being held at the Javits Center in NYC this past weekend. Even though the weather was amazing this first weekend of Spring, it still did not keep attendance down, at least not at the Interlaken wedding booth! We received many inquiries – there’s no doubt we will fill these few remaining dates this season, so now it is time to look for 2011 to get your preferred date! Connecticut is among the few states where civil unions can take place, so consider venturing up to the Northwest Corner of the State to see what we have to offer! Visit our website by clicking here! Thank you to all of those that visited our booth – we hope you will come for a tour soon!
